Cool updates. I didn't know the Lyme proposal was located across Brays. That certainly would do more to tie the Spires closer to the Med Center community.

And a nice new image of One Park Place. Really gives the building's height more definition.

Great find on the Lyme rendering. They are a FIRST CLASS operation. Their developments in Boston and across the river in Cambridge are spectacular. I was hoping their Houston project would live up to my expectations and it looks like it will.

Last time I was in town, the lot (right next to the Spires) was clear and there was a leasing sign out. Here's to hoping...

Are you ever satisfied? This is the Med Center (a few short miles south of Downtown), and new developments in Downtown. Downtown is in good shape right now.

Phoenix Development Thread Enjoying Your Park

Just wanted to congratulate Houston on its large DT park development. The Phoenix City Council just approved a $1 Billion mixed-use development for three square blocks at the 0,0 origin point of Phoenix called Cityscape. One of the blocks includes Patriot's Square Park. The developer and city parks board will be redesigining park space within the development and the Phx Devel thread has been kicking around ideas on what the park should be. I came across Houston's park web site. It has some elements that I thought would be perfect for Phoenix as well, especially the interactive fountain. Someone posted the rendering of the entire park and I posted the portion showing the interactive fountain. .... Your park is getting a lot of play in Phoenix. Thanks and congrat's again!

That looks like a W-Hotel on the left.


Thanks for that JimInCal.
